Privacy

Our approach to handling your information is described in our Privacy Policy. We answer questions about additional privacy related practices, including the lawful basis for processing data, hosting of data, and use of subprocessors, in our GDPR and CCPA Frequently Asked Questions. We are compliant or support your compliance with the following laws:

HIPAA

The “Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996” is designed to provide privacy standards to protect information related to healthcare, including medical records. Zix is trusted by over 1,200 U.S. hospitals. Here is our Business Associate agreement.

SEC Rule 17a-4

Under the Securities and Exchange Act of 1934, the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) requires accessibility and archives for the member, broker, or dealer to download information kept on the broker's or dealer's electronic storage media to any medium acceptable under SEC Rule 17a-4. If requested, Zix will provide a representation letter confirming that its archive electronic storage media meets the conditions set forth in the rule.

CCPA

The “California Consumer Privacy Act”  (CCPA) is a California State Statute that became effective on January 1, 2020. It was designed to enhance the protection of privacy rights and consumer protection for California residents. Zix is committed to informing our consumer customers, who are California residents, of their rights in relation to the CCPA. Learn more about California Consumer Rights Under the CCPA in our Privacy Policy and through our GDPR and CCPA Frequently Asked Questions.

GLBA

Zix has been selected by financial institutions to assist them in keeping their compliance with the GLBA.
